Amaizing Energy LLC, an ethanol producer in Denison, Iowa, received a USDA rural development grant for $250,000, as well as a $250,000 loan guarantee to be used for energy efficiency improvements. General Manager Al Jentz said the funds will go toward the acquisition and installation of a Pavillion Technologies plant-wide software solution, which will optimize the plant's process loops. Jentz said the installation has begun, and he estimated that the system will be completely installed by spring 2007.
